While many were speaking up and protesting in the streets over the Eric Garner decision, two pop stars were taking out their anger on each other in a series of aggressive tweets.

In case you didn't follow the curse-laden, semi-coherent stream of consciousness on Twitter Wednesday, Azealia Banks was mad that Iggy Azalea wasn't speaking up in support of the black community over the recent grand jury decisions in the killing of two black men by white cops.

Banks thinks Azalea, whom she refers to as a "wannabe black girl," owed this to her black fans which helped get her where she is today.

"If you're down to ride with us," she wrote. "you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY."

She also segued into calling gay men misogynistic and throwing out gay slurs - for some reason - in the middle of her rant.

Eventually Iggy Azalea responded calling Banks a troll, and scolding her followers for "finding any reason to promote shade, trolling, fan fights and memes."

Jon Stewart is just as disturbed as you are about the Eric Garner decision.

Following the announcement that a grand jury would not indict the police officer who put unarmed Garner in a chokehold resulting in his death, people across the country expressed shock and disbelief. Many taking to Twitter with the hashtag #ICantBreathe

In New York, swarms of protesters blocked major roads and intersections, tried to shut down the Rockefeller tree lighting, and held "die ins" at various parts of the city including Grand Central Station.

And since the news broke before the taping of "The Daily Show" on Wednesday, Jon Stewart had an opportunity to chime in. But don't expect much humor from him here.

"I don't know," said Stewart. "I honestly don't know what to say."
